    ******Update******
    STEALTH has made a review of the helmet. Check it out here: Don't forget to subscribe to his awesome channel!

    **************************Udated Again!***************************************

    I got sick and tired of ATZLAN's files being so much better than mine, so I'm giving it an upgrade. I may even do the whole suit. I'm going to give it a bit of time and then reassess the how it looks from the side.

    Pepakura takes a LONG time. I don't think people realise that when they first star, I certainly didn't.

    It looks good. You might want to put some skewers or something to push out the sides. If you add the bottom and the mouth section it will help with that too.

    Wicked! it looks Awesome! The little detail on the side of the jaw under your ear looks like it's sticking out, it intended to be recessed, maybe it's just the lighting though.

    Wow. This model is amazing. And I know, how much time it takes, to make something from pepakura. I've made once Darth's Vader suit for my friend. Now I'm starting to make custom Batman's suit for myself. When I will finish, maybe I will take on your model.

    Just finished gluing this together. Tried to transfer it to foam but it just did not look good so I am going the pep route. Going to resin this baby up tomorrow and then start the bondo stage and with the long weekend get this a nice start on the helmet.

    That's not from my file is it? Not that I mind of course, just curious. It's hard to tell with those sharpie lines. It's making me want to make a foam version myself.

    I'll be updating in a few hours. Although I've been working on this quite a lot I haven't been posting updates since I haven't really felt like my work would look too much different from earlier posts.

    These are all looking really good, can't wait to see them finished. I'd love to have a go at it but I'm just collecting half finished projects at the moment that I need to finish up. Plus I'm skint too:cry

    ..
    The green stuff is Apoxie Sculpt, this stuff is great. I thought it would be easier keeping the neck guard bit separate but now I'm not so sure.The crest on the forehead needs tweaking. It's been tough keeping that edge prominent while also keeping the silhouette accurate.

    I also dropped the price by half on my Etsy page. Now just $5. You can grab it by following the link in my signature.

    This build has been sent to try me!!!:(

    First, the place I usually get me cardstock from, dirt cheap and great quality doesn't sell it anymore. Had to buy some more expensive and less sturdy card.

    Next, my printer just decided it didn't want to print pep files anymore, took forever to figure that one out, and I'm still not exactly sure how I fixed it.

    Then my hot glue gun blew up! Only got as far as the top and back of the dome.

    :cry

    Hopefully pick up a new gun today and dig away at it over the next few evenings and get some rondo into it Thursday/Friday.

    Still working on this. I'm actually closer than I thought I was, It's amazing what a coat of primer can do. I have pretty much all of the geometry how I want it with the exception of those recessed parts on the sides and some filling to do on the back. I hope to have this done by about this time next week.

    Thanks man! How's your helmet coming along?

    The chin is really giving me trouble. It's too simple, too few edges, it looks off unless it's absolutely perfect.

    thanks!! , ahhh I see you added the neck detail that has the model from the SDCC nice!!!!! looks insane. I do got to ask, how did you add the neck cover to the helmet?? I know its not part of the helmet but I dont know how to attach it like you so it can be resin with it so it can keep its curved shape.

    on mine I have to be honest I just scratch built it from cardboard adn tons of bondo. I actually didn't bother with the neck guard from the pep. Originally I thought it needed to be a separate piece, and that how it was going to be in the movie but now with more images available it turns out I was wrong. I'd say just hot glue it as best you can.

    If you can glue it on and still get your head inside, I'd say just glue it permanently

    Wish I knew how to convert this file to foam. Don't have time for the paper build (one week until con). Great work though!! Your file looks spot on
